Heads up! This blog post hasn't been updated in over 2 years. CodePen is an ever changing place, so if this post references features, you're probably better off checking the docs. Get in touch with support if you have further questions.

Yesterday, I had the privilege of sitting in on CodePen all-star Gregor Adams’ workshop on illusions and animated art at CSSConf Budapest.

Using CodePen’s Professor Mode (and a trusty whiteboard from time to time) Gregor walked the class through creating a great group of different experiments, all the while encouraging creativity and exploration in code.

The workshop began with a simple grid of squares, which was a great layout for people to start getting creative with colors and animations!

They then progressed into creating fractals!

And ended impressively with a CSS-made Penrose triangle!

Gregor said he welcomes the idea of taking the workshop on the road, so if you’re looking for someone to add a little artistic flair to your conference, you can reach him on Twitter!
